Here’s What You’ll Need

These wraps combine all of the flavors of our fave chicken Caesar salad in a hand held bite.

  • Tortillas: I use large flour tortillas in this recipe as they’re softer and pliable, so they won’t break.
  • Chicken: Chicken breasts or thighs with a little cajun seasoning are my favorite in this recipe. If you’ve got leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken, that works too!
  • Lettuce: Romaine lettuce is traditional in a Caesar salad and it holds up well and has lots of crunch. You can also use kale (be sure to massage it first as we do in our kale caesar salad).
  • Cheese: Parmesan adds a salty and umami flavor. Manchego and Asiago have similar salty, bright flavors that work well in this recipe.
  • Dressing: If time allows, I recommend my homemade Caesar dressing—I promise it’s easy! You can use bottled dressed, jazz it up with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for extra tang!

Take a shortcut for an easy meal on a busy weeknight!

Buy a Caesar salad kit – complete with dressing and washed lettuce and toss it together. Tuck it into tortillas with either rotisserie chicken or crispy chicken tenders.

Variations

  • Bacon bits and homemade croutons are classic additions to a Caesar salad.
  • Sliced or chopped avocado is a definite yes from me! I love how it adds a touch of extra creaminess to every bite.
  • Up the protein with chopped boiled egg.

How to Make a Chicken Caesar Wrap

  • With a filet knife, cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 thin cutlets, ½-inch thick.

  • Season with Cajun seasoning, making sure to cover all of the chicken.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate to rest.

  • In a large bowl, add the chopped lettuce, ¼ cup of the parmesan cheese, and bacon bits (if using). Add ¾ cup of dressing and the juice of half a lemon and toss well to combine.

  • Chop the chicken.

  • Place the tortillas on a plate and top with a damp paper towel. Cover with plastic wrap (or a second plate, inverted) and warm in the microwave for 20 seconds.

  • Divide the lettuce mixture over the tortillas, top with the chicken and diced tomato. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  • Roll the tortilla, burrito-style, and serve immediately.

*Use store-bought or homemade Cajun seasoning. Cajun seasoning can be replaced with your favorite chicken seasoning, or salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.
**For the best flavor, use real bacon bits or cooked and crumbled bacon. If using real bacon bits, I microwave them on a paper towel for about 40 seconds to crisp.
***Use bottled Caesar dressing or make this quick Caesar salad dressing
